I'm in the same situation as you right now. Since i started with Rocksmith i used that cheap Les Paul Junior Guitar that was included in the bundle. I didn't know if it was a good one or not. But over the time i found issues with this guitar like some screws were loose, some nutlocks were loose and some too tight, the bridge had some issues too and stuff and so i thought, i would love to have a beauty like a Schecter Hellraiser, but then on the other Hand i wouldn't use it right or even play right. Because as you can imagine i can't play solos at all and it would be a waste of money and the guitar would just get abused by me, literally...
So a few days ago, i bought online a Schecter C-6 Deluxe for € 287,82 (i know it's a weird number...) but i bought it at gear4music.com in the UK. And i'm freaking out like a little kid right now, i can't remember when i last was this excited. Well i had to push the delivery to the 25th of october for some reasons tho. Still can't wait to get my hands on this Guitar and take care of it.
I can't tell you how it will be with this guitar but if you want to i'll keep you updated how i will end up with the Schecter C-6 Deluxe
I'm hoping for a better sliding performance with the thin C Neck tho and the low profile between the strings and the fretboars
